Neel Oza: Nothing sudden, for I always used to admire people with ‘huge cameras and lens’ roaming worldwide and capturing everyone's smile. It intrigued me how they have their own vision to see the world through those small glasses and preserve it for a lifetime. I craved those all through my childhood.
At 19, I started my career in this field. My friends and family always appreciate my photography skills. They encouraged me to pursue my dream further. And very soon I started receiving orders. I was amazed observing how immersed I was in my work.
I realized that the world through these lenses made me a different person with a unique perspective.
From 2019-21, these three years were like a new beginning of my life. I had no background or any godfather when i entered this Industry. I faced several ups and downs, and also my parents supported me with every step of my life and encouraged me.
I started my journey by being an amateur filmmaker, who was also unfamiliar with various photography tricks and techniques. As a student in film school, I started with short films, documentaries, and advertisements.
I also started capsule courses before graduation to have an edge over my peers. I waited for 10-12 months to be able to be in the best college. I wanted to learn the best thing from the best mentors.
My achievements include working in web series, movies, short films with great celebrities like Naseeruddin Shah, Daisy Shah, Rajendra Chawla, Darsheel Safari, and many more. I have done photoshoots for huge brands like Raymond.
I was also called as a photographer at the Tata Mumbai Marathon which is Asia's largest marathon. I have made all kinds of films, and am also interested in experiencing various projects in my field. My role for any project is to be a cinematographer.
I provide services including wedding photography, behind the scenes, house warming, fashion, food, candid, videography, cinematic wedding, and others.
